Marimekko opens in Boston!
Tuesday, August 14, 2012
This weekend, I was lucky enough to head to Boston's Back Bay for a celebration of the opening of a new Marimekko store. The team in Finland created fabric cakes in honor of the new store, and Susan Ward, one of the leading experts on the Finnish design house, gave a talk on Sunday morning about the history of Marimekko and its arrival in the U.S. (thanks to architect Ben Thompson and Design Research in Cambridge). I learned a lot, enjoyed shopping, and even spent a little time lounging on the giant poufs outside. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday!
